I am considering a new video camera, and would like some input before dropping $400 into a system. The GoPro seems to be one of the most popular these days, but the Sony Splash AS100 draws some very high ratings as well. I'd like some input on these two, and others that may be available as well.

One of the many things I like about my gopro is that it has a remote that I can attach to my key fob that allows me to turn the thing on and off while I'm riding.

some other things to consider:

i can charge my go pro on the bike
i can download my videos at the end of the day, right to my ipad
i can preview my camera set up, wirelessly, from my ipad before I ride
there are tons of accessories for mounting/using the gopro

I settled on the Sony HDR AS100V, and this is my first effort with it. I just used the mount that I already had for a trial, but will soon mount it with different mounts and different locations.

After reading the reviews to find a cheaper solution I decided to go back to the Gopro after I lost my other one. I got the GoPro 3+ Black. It comes with a remote but it went into a drawer and don't use, I used the app and can remote and control the gopro with my phone, can also watch what I record, review it and of course change all the settings.

I think the go pro has to many settings, Mine video'd upside down the other day. If i had to do it over again i would go with a more simple one. Unless you know all about cameras, im old school. You know like on, off. lol
